Yes! It costs about one-third of a gas vehicle based on LEU’s power costs ($.16/kWh) and average cost per gallon of gas ($5.00). 

An EV can travel on average 3-4 miles per kilowatt hour (kWh); therefore, a 50kWh battery pack, which is the average for a mid-size sedan, has a range of about 150 miles (conservative). To obtain LEU's residential charging rate, a separate meter is required. LEU’s residential charging rate is about $.16/kWh . A 50kWh battery would cost roughly $8 to fill up or $5.33 per 100 miles.

A gas vehicle with an average tank size of 14 gallons, and an average of 24mpg at Lodi’s fuel cost of $5.00/gal would cost $70 to fill up, or $20.83 per 100 miles.  That’s about 3.9x higher than fueling an EV in Lodi.
